The Radisson Blu Hotel at Disneyland Paris acts for the environment protection and supports Planète Urgence organization

Since 2006, the year of the opening of the Disneyland Paris hotel, Radisson Blu Hotel is engaged daily in sustainable development actions.

Since 2010, with Planète Urgence, the hotel has concentrated its efforts towards carbon compensation by planting trees through the Climate Emergency operation.

Radisson Blu Hotel is committed to plant a minimum of 2,500 trees in the upcoming year, in Mali, Madagascar and Indonesia by offering business clients the opportunity to support this action.

Planète Urgence is a French NGO that acts for the environment protection.

Born in 2000, Planète Urgence is fighting against inequalities North-South in the world and also against the Earth's deforestation.

Because trees are much needed to preserve the planet's well-being, Planète Urgence provided its support with the launch of the "Environment & Development" program and the "Climate Emergency" operation.

This reforestation project aims to replant at least 6 billion trees by 2012. Since the beginning of this operation, more than 2 billion trees have already been planted.

The Radisson Blu Hotel at Disneyland Paris, member of the Rezidor Group which is strongly engaged in sustainable development, supports the carbon offsetting.

Rewarded for its action in favor of the environmental protection with the "Clef Verte" label and strongly committed to responsible action, the Rezidor Group has been developing its own "Responsible Business" program for over 15 years. The Radisson Blu Hotel has logically chosen Planète Urgence for a long term partnership in the reforestation project.

The Radisson Blu Hotel is ideally situated for golf at Disneyland Paris, being located in the heart of a 27 hole golf course and is therefore very aware of the benefits of natural areas, a significant asset that seduces both leisure and business clients.

The Radisson Blu Hotel Disneyland Paris is committed to communicating and suggesting to companies that organize events to help the hotel in the Planète Urgence action by offering a symbolic euro for every 1,000 euros spent at the hotel for service provided; the hotel will match every euro donated by the client.
